Las Meninas

"Las Meninas" was painted in 1656 by Velazquez in Prado, Madrid. In this painting we see Velazquez painting the king and queen. We can see them in the reflection of the mirror in the background. The main focus of this painting is Infanta Margarita, the daughter of King Philip IV. He creates form through color and light instead of lines which creates a very real image of the human figure. It is an interesting perspective and cool that the artist added himself to the painting.
